Greenway House and Gardens

Greenway House and Gardens

This is an extraordinary glimpse into the private holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family. The relaxed and atmospheric house is set in the 1950s, and contains many of the family’s collections, including archaeology, Tunbridgeware, silver, botanical china and books. Outside you can explore the large and romantic woodland garden, with a restored vinery, wild edges and rare plantings, which drifts down the hillside towards the sparkling Dart estuary. Please consider ‘green ways’ to get here, to relieve pressure on congested lanes: eg cycling, walking or ferries from Dartmouth, Torquay and Brixham.

Dartmouth Castle

Dartmouth Castle

Journey through 600 years from medieval times to WW2. Stunning views of the River Dart - special events during the summer.

One of the most picturesquely- sited fortresses in England. For over six hundred years Dartmouth Castle has guarded the narrow entrance to the Dart Estuary and the busy, vibrant port of Dartmouth.

Unusually incorporating the fine church of St Petrox, the castle saw action during the Civil War, and continued in service right up until World War II. Successive up-dating included the Victorian ‘Old Battery’ with its remounted heavy guns, guardrooms and maze of passages to explore. Here a dramatic film-sequence recreates a Victorian gun-firing, and throughout the fortress displays retell the six centuries of castle history.

Bayards Cove

Bayards Cove

Explore a fort, right in Dartmouth!

Just a stones throw from the town centre and featured in many film and TV programmes this 16 th century quay of old houses certainly provides you with an opportunity to step back in time. Further along the quay brings you to a fort.

This single storey Tudor artillery fort was built before 1534 to protect the harbour from any hostile ships that might have made it past the defences of Kingswear and Dartmouth castles
